TWO PEOPLE SEEKING ESCAPE IN A VIRTUAL WORLD
In eScape, Kam has it all — a body that works, beautiful friends, her own space, and a wealth of stolen credits. In the real world, she’s terminally ill and living in the rundowns, a place where hope goes to die.
In the real world, Lyle seems to have it all. As the son of a famous self-help guru, Julia Grace, strangers envy his perfect life and perfect relationship with his mother. Nobody knows the torture she’s put him through. All Lyle wants is the escape of anonymity in eScape — where he can be himself by hiding behind an avatar.
CONNECTED BY TRAGEDY, DESPERATE FOR LOVE
When Kam and Lyle meet, they each might be the escape the other is looking for.
But Kam can never let Lyle see the REAL her or the hovel she lives in. If he realizes she’s a criminal who’s stolen everything she has, he’ll leave her.
She has no idea Lyle is lying, too – caught in a web of his mother’s manipulations. Each of them loses everything if they tell the truth – but admitting their lies could get them killed.
And not even eScape can protect them from what’s coming.

How hard is it to admit you did something you probably shouldn’t have, but then that turned out to be a GREAT thing ?
I judged this book SOLELY on the cover without reading the synopsis. How rude! Right?
Avery Blake has a killer marketing team! This cover is it! I was completely blown away just by the cover alone that I didn’t care and just had to read this!
Now, we move on…
What does this title mean to you ? I know personally, I was intrigued.
I went in on this book blind and I don’t have one regret . Ruthless Positivity is hands down a 5 star thriller that has everyone buzzing in my book group. I was lucky enough to snag an approval prior to the big day and to say I’m grateful is an understatement .
This plot is like no other I have ever read before . The characters were layered and dimensional . My attention was easily captivated and once I started reading I knew it would be impossible to put down. My husband went hungry but at least I didn’t forget to feed the dog !!!
Here is my suggestion to all! It doesn’t matter if you typically enjoy thrillers, you ALL need to read this book.
Big thank you to Avery Blake, Sterling and Stone, and Netgalley for introducing me to one of my favorite books thus far !
